Don’t miss the launch of The Revolution Will Not Be Litigated edited by Katie Redford and Mark Gevisser at Love Books (21 Sep)
Jonathan Ball Publishers and Love Books invite you to the book launch of The Revolution Will Not Be Litigated edited by Katie Redford and Mark Gevisser.
Co-editor Gevisser will be in conversation with two of the contributors, Mark Heywood and Kumi Naidoo, as well as Nomzamo Zondo.
Written from the maxim ‘it takes a lawyer, an activist, and a storyteller to change the world’, The Revolution Will Not Be Litigated shows how the law and social movements can reinforce each other in the struggle for justice and freedom.
‘Every person in this book has spent their lives acting like the house is on fire and responding to the world’s most pressing problems with the urgency they deserve. But more than that, they are offering a roadmap for doing what is often considered to be impossible, but necessary. They are the true leaders that the world needs to listen to and follow.’ – Greta Thunberg
In these vibrant narratives, 25 of the world’s most accomplished movement lawyers and activists become storytellers, reflecting on their experiences at the frontlines of some of the most significant struggles of our time. In an era where human rights are under threat, their words offer both an inspiration and a compass for the way movements can use the law – and must sometimes break it – to bring about social justice.
